On many a night, he drove me crazy but only because I knew he was so good. He was always Toronto's best player and oddly the one I never had anything against. He as a model captain and someone I have the utmost respect for. He may have been our bitter rival but I will give respect where respect is due and Mats Sundin deserves a nice sendoff.
We had many memorable battles together and many moments to look back on. I will always remember when Alfie did his best Mats impression and fake threw the stick into crowd. You were the only Leaf who thought it was funny, not some ridiculous disrespectful gesture.
You made me sleepless on countless night's and single handedly drove up my post game drinking bill but congratulations on a hall of fame career. Weirdly, you will be missed.
